Statistics 2015 / 6

residenceOver the course of 2015, a total of 31,063 ITAs were issued to individuals around the world looking to immigrate to Canada.

Given that early draws selected a large number of candidates under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), it is likely that a large number of food service supervisors and cooks already in Canada were invited over the first few rounds of invitations. As time goes on, the relative number of invitees in such occupations is expected to decrease; the figures heading into 2016 and beyond will likely reveal a wider range of occupations, particularly in professional occupations such as IT and business.

When Express Entry was introduced, the government of Canada set a target to process at least 80% of complete applications within six months. Not only has this target been reached — it has actually been surpassed, and comfortably. This aspect of Express Entry has been an unambiguous success, and leaves the system in a competitive position to continue to attract new candidates who wish to take control of their own destiny and apply to an immigration system that is responsive and swift.
